Net::SFTP::Foreign::Compat(3) Adapter for Net::SFTP compatibility


use Net::SFTP::Foreign::Compat;
my $sftp = Net::SFTP::Foreign::Compat->new($host);
$sftp->get("foo", "bar");
$sftp->put("bar", "baz");
use Net::SFTP::Foreign::Compat ':supplant';
my $sftp = Net::SFTP->new($host);


This package is a wrapper around Net::SFTP::Foreign that provides an API (mostly) compatible with that of Net::SFTP.

Methods on this package are identical to those in Net::SFTP except that Net::SFTP::Foreign::Attributes::Compat objects have to be used instead of Net::SFTP::Attributes.

If the ":supplant" tag is used, this module installs also wrappers on the "Net::SFTP" and Net::SFTP::Attributes packages so no other parts of the program have to modified in order to move from Net::SFTP to Net::SFTP::Foreign.

Setting defaults

The hash %Net::SFTP::Foreign::DEFAULTS can be used to set default values for Net::SFTP::Foreign methods called under the hood and otherwise not accessible through the Net::SFTP API.

The entries currently supported are:

new => \@opts
extra options passed to Net::SFTP::Foreign constructor.
get => \@opts
extra options passed to Net::SFTP::Foreign::get method.
put => \@opts
extra options passed to Net::SFTP::Foreign::put method.
ls => \@opts
extra options passed to Net::SFTP::Foreign::ls method.
